Subject: Thanks for the Review!
Thank you for the kind words, @BonnieSmith. Currently we are uploading the previously digitized films in the collection. Reel 58A was transferred but we only have it on Umatic currently. Hopefully in the next few months we will be able to digitize it and upload it here. Keep checking back: we upload something new every week!

Whoever is uploading these, THANK YOU.
The library has had these and hundreds more that
have never been digitized, for a long, long time.
FILM can be damaged or destroyed in a fire.
It would be such a shame if all this great HISTORY
went down the drain!

I'd love to see The Year in Review - 1951 (Reel #58A)
if possible!

Please digitize the rest of the collection, even if the library wont release them, at least they'll be saved
for posterity.
Thanks again,
Rick and Bonnie Smith
